The likes of DriveClub and The Crew may rule the road this year, but EA’s not going to miss out on an opportunity to re-release last year’s Need for Speed game while the newest one is cooking behind closed doors. The no-nonsense Need for Speed: Rivals – Complete Edition is due out on 21st October in North America and 24th October in Europe, and comes complete with all of the original game’s vehicular add-on packs.
We were rather fond of our Sunday drive around Redview County, awarding the vanilla title a very solid 7/10 last year – despite a few niggling issues. “Performance sputters and progression impeding connectivity problems scrape a layer of polish off the overall package,” this particular author penned. “This is agonisingly close to being at the front of the pack, and is the best arcade racer on the PS4 by default, but its missteps mean that it’s a millisecond away from a podium place.”
